Fly me to the Moon! The Blast Moonstruck reproduces the moon’s rotation, the apparent movement of the sun around the globe as we observe it from Earth and a tidal chart. Designed to make this dance between the sun and the moon intelligible and intensely poetic, the geocentric display of the Blast Moonstruck is easy to understand, even for a beginner with no knowledge of astronomy.
To increase the impact of the 3D effect, the domed crystal, with the land masses micro-engraved on the inside, is set in the protective sapphire crystal box encircled by an 18 ct rose gold ring engraved with the 31 days of the month, which has for a pointer a small triangle loaded with luminescent material.
The team in charge of the creation of the Moonstruck chose to provide a representation of the moon phases in a round aperture located at the apogee of an ellipse portraying its orbit, which is depicted as being in the same ecliptic plane as Earth for practical reasons.
This 45 mm diameter astronomical watch in black ceramic and black DLC-treated titanium, worn on a alligator, velvet or rubber strap that is also black, surely meets the expectations of this ambitious project.
"The sun has a force that creates and destroys life. The moon influences the tides but also our nocturnal music and dreams."
The Worldtimer Manufacture of the Blast Moonstruck offers exceptional watch lovers a new celestial odyssey, whose reinvented watchmaking mechanism reproduces as faithfully as possible the visible course of the Sun and the cycle of the moons. Heir to the trilogy of astronomical watches created nearly 40 years ago by the learned watchmaker Ludwig Oechslin, this new Blast now offers to set in motion the primordial elements of visible celestial mechanics in order to allow everyone to apprehend the universe that surrounds us in a poetic manner thanks to a contemporary and intuitive display.
